    In some ways, yes, this would be the ideal year to thru-hike, at least in terms of not having a huge bubble of hikers to deal with. Then again, that's what attracts some of them. (Not me, in case you...

    The spring by Garfield Shelter/Campsite is your best bet. Good, clean water, and about halfway through the loop. With Galehead closed, I think that's your go-to.

    Treeline in the CO Rockies is around 11,500 feet versus 4,500 in the Northeast (roughly). Colorado has "permanent snowfields", obviously not that much higher than treeline. It seems like another 1000...

    Pretty much didn't understand a thing you said. ;)

    BUT, thank you for the work you put in to keep the site running smoothly. (That much I do understand.)

    There are a few thru-hikers still, though many/most ended their thru-hike. In a sense, it's 'lucky' when the shutdown happened because the vast majority hadn't gotten very far. I imagine if the...

    You could always travel a bit south of there to the Indian Peaks Wilderness. A lot less crowded and some fantastic peaks. There are several peaks from Brainerd Lake, or aim for James Peak from...

    My memories of that area are pretty old, too, but I recall The Priest being more scenic than Three Ridges. The vertical rise is significant, but not nearly as rugged as the Whites. You'll be fine....

    Okay - thanks. I've never parked at 7 Dwarfs, so I'm not familiar with that route. The snowmobile trail must cross the river near the hotel and then hook up to Haystack Road? It must track more...

    Gotcha - thanks. Every time I drive that road, I tell myself to track the mileage. And every time I forget.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding something (quite possible), I'm getting conflicting information. Josh says Little River Road is not an option at all. Peakbagger, you're saying you can still park at the...

    So basically no one touches the Hale FWT or North Twin Trail in the wintertime? Unless you roadwalk nearly the entirety of Haystack Road (2-3 miles)?

    Any word about the new shelter being bigger or smaller, the same design or different? That shelter holds some good memories going back to the 1990s! It was noticeably leaning last fall when I...

    I haven't done Twin Brook Trail in twenty years, but I remember it being a very pleasant hike up to Galehead from 13 Falls. The upper FBT from Garfield was a mess when I did it, though it was very...

    Details are a bit fuzzy in my memory, but there's an area south of Asheville that I went to several times. The Black Balsam area was fantastic--open meadows, high mountains, long views, and plenty of...

    He's not the first AT thru-hiker to give up in NH this year. The first guy through gave up just after Kinsman Notch at the end of April. Seems to have ignored a lot of advice and thought he could...

    1997. Mount Washington got over 90" of snow in May alone. In mid-June, there was still 3-4 feet of snow on places like Twinway. The AMC shelters and campsites had a hard time digging out and getting...

    It's been a few years, but I'm pretty sure I came up from the highway (Rt 56?), not the BRP, and it was around 3000' vertical. Perhaps there's more than one way, though.

    Roan Highlands along the TN/NC border is a fantastic stretch, arguably the best stretch of AT south of New England. South of Asheville, the Black Balsam area of the Blue Ridge Parkway is a nice,...
